    Default Manuka the micro pig has a day out in London

    Tiny tourist Manuka is as happy as a pig in... well, the city, as she enjoys her first trip to London.

    Short trip: Micro pig Manuka opposite the Houses of Parliament (Pictures: Barcroft Media)

    She trotted around the capital on a day out to remember, taking in sights such as Big Ben and the London Eye, before running into the police, who could not resist a cuddle.
    Manuka is a ‘micro pig’ – the latest must-have pet for celebrities including David and Victoria Beckham and Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint.

    ‘A lot of people couldn’t believe they were seeing this tiny little pig trotting around the city,’ said owner and micro pig breeder Jane Croft, of Christchurch, Cambridgeshire.
    ‘Most were intrigued and came over to say hello to her. She was a bit of a local star for the day.’
    At just 12cm (5in) high and 33cm (13in) long, Manuka was dwarfed by some of London’s top attractions, including Trafalgar Square’s huge lions.

    Micro pigs – also known as miniature and teacup pigs – grow to just 35cm (14in) tall and live about 20 years.

    ‘They are such great pets,’ said Jane, 43. ‘They are really very loving and the breed is very intelligent.’

    I know it's totally wrong, but I want one sooo bad. They actually get attached to you, like dogs. Wouldn't that be the sweetest thing, to have a little pig friend?

    The more I see these micro pigs, the cuter they get. I haven't got to the point where I want one, but they are cute as hell.

    I'm so desperate for a micro piggy, almost to the point of broodiness!

    How ironic, a teeny weeny pig named after a large tree.

    It's very cute!
